Call The Midwife spoilers

In episode seven tonight (Sunday, February 16), Dr Kevin McNulty (Lee Armstrong) performs an excellent forceps delivery - his final supervision under Dr Turner.

Miss Higgins (Georgie Glen) congratulates Kevin on how well he is doing, but at the same time she still has her beady eye on him. Eight and a half months pregnant Yvonne (Sophie Melville) is Kevin’s next patient and sadly has troubles at home - her husband is a drunk and is abusive.

Dr Turner feels Yvonne is a patient that Kevin could give full emotional as well as medical support to.

Ahead of clinic, the team finally receive the long-awaited incubator for the maternity home with ribbon cutting and speeches to thank all those who donated. Among the many mothers at clinic is new patient Marion (Ellie Wallwork) and her husband Stewart (Dylan Llewellyn).

Marion has a rare form of retinitis pigmentosa that has left her blind. Trixie (Helen George) is on hand to assist Marion and is keen to support her as much as she can, though Marion insists on doing things herself.

Meanwhile, since SGT Woolf (Trevor Cooper) left, Nurse Crane (Linda Bassett) has started to struggle with the cubs. Cyril (Zephryn Taitte) suggests that he and Lucille should help Nurse Crane.

The new series of Call The Midwife series airs Sunday nights at 9PM on BBC One.
